95 meters is what Gröna Lund posted in their "April fools" post on Facebook (which turned out to not be April fools)

I don't know the details about the Star Flyer, but I'm guessing that maybe the listed height of 121 meters also includes the spire on top, and that the ride portion of the tower is not that tall...??

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

If it actually turns out to be an Intamin drop tower like Falcons Fury then it will be incredible, they've certainly got a really good collection of tower riders for sure!

Did my donkey title just change???

Experience the worst fall in history! In 2017 Ikaros is coming to Gröna Lund!

Imagine sitting in a chair, dangling with your feet high above the city of Stockholm, secured by a shoulder restraint. As you're approching the top of the tower, your chair is suddenly tilting you 90 degrees, and you find yourself lying horisontally facing the ground. Then comes the drop...

When Gröna Lund opens in april 2017, the visitors will be divided into those who dare and whose who don't...do you dare to try the worst fall in history?

Image

Some facts:
2 gondolas with 8 seats each
Tower height: 95m
Top Speed: 90km/h
G-forces: 3,5
Type: Intamin Sky Jump
Will be built on a bridge between Lustiga Huset and Jetline

Getting around the space restriction by using a small tower with two carriages on either side. Nice!

Ugh, that means I will have to go twice to Sweden in this two years. This summer for Wildfire and next year to visit Grona Lund!

Because this park didn't have enough tower rides LOL! (picture from TPR park index)

But yeah, definitely an awesome addition that will make a fantastic park even better!
